Ductless Air Conditioning Services in Rome, GA
For many years, the standard layout for most people regarding climate control has been to have one system for heating and one for cooling. While this works just fine, it’s no longer the only option when it comes to keeping your home comfortable. With the advent of heat pump technology, you can now keep your home heated in winter and cooled in summer at a fraction of the cost. Moody Heating and Air Conditioning installs and services a wide range of ductless systems throughout Rome, GA. If you need a ductless system installed, repaired, maintained, or replaced, call today to set up an appointment.
How Ductless Systems Work
A ductless system is a heat pump that uses air handlers to distribute air directly to rooms, instead of through a duct system. Each room that requires climate control will have its own air handler installed, with up to four indoor air handlers connected to a single outside unit. Each air handler also has its own thermostat installed, which allows it to operate independently of the rest of the system.
During operation, the ductless system operates much the same way an air conditioner does. If in cooling mode, refrigerant is evaporated in a coil inside the air handler to absorb thermal energy from the room. The refrigerant gas then travels to the outside unit and is condensed back into liquid, releasing the collected energy outside of the home. Like all heat pumps, ductless systems are able to reverse their refrigerant flows to offer both heating and cooling functions.
Advantages of Ductless Systems
The primary advantage of ductless systems is energy efficiency. Rather than having two separate systems, one for heating and one for cooling, you can use a ductless system for both. Ductless systems don’t burn fuel to generate heat, so they’re quite a bit more efficient than the average heating system, as well.
The ability of each air handler to operate separately from the rest of the system also grants a nice advantage over traditional centralized systems. You can set the ideal temperature for each room in your home, so no more warring with other members of the household over how warm or cold it should be.
Finally, not having to use ducts is a significant advantage over centralized systems because it avoids massive energy losses. The US Department of Energy estimates that the average central forced air system loses as much as 30% of its total output to duct leaks. With a ductless system, you never have to worry about the condition of your ducts affecting the efficiency of your climate control.
